Australian Mining Excavator Operator Jobs

If you want to work as an equipment operator in the mining industry, and want more information on how to get into it, there's no better time to start than the present. Being an equipment operator is very physically demanding, but also very rewarding. Equipment operators are in charge of operating excavating equipment in a safe and efficient manner. You need to operate heavy machines in intense weather conditions, and work long hours, but the pay is great. Some equipment operators earn up to $120,000 a year.

If this sounds like your kind of job, you may want to know what licenses you need, if there are traineeships available in particular areas, whether you need previous experience in the industry, the sort of training required and where to get it, what certifications are required to operate the machines, and what sort of pay you can expect. Mining Australia can answer all of these questions and more, and can also suggest how to make your resume look as professional as possible, so you can get ahead of other applicants. If you want equipment operator information, we can help.

There are plenty of mine sites all over Australia. There may be equipment operator positions near you, or you could look in to a FIFO (fly in/fly out) role so you can remain living in your home town but experience the benefits of working in a remote location. Employers usually pay for trips to the site, and trips back home if you're employed in a FIFO position. An excavator operator position might be what you're looking for if you have experience operating excavators in a construction or mining environment, have at least 6 months mining experience, can pass a pre-employment medical examination and have or can obtain a first aid certificate.

If you don't have any of these, don't give up now. There are other ways to become an equipment operator in the mines, and there are many other positions you can look at if you don't yet meet the criteria to become an equipment operator. If you are thinking about joining the exciting lifestyle of the mining industry, now is a great time to do it. The industry is always looking for new experienced and inexperienced workers. All the information you need is waiting for you; just contact the fantastic team at Mining Australia.
